Officer dismissed after 11 Israel soldiers go AWOL

Aug. 12, 2011 5:41 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 12, 2011 5:41 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- An Israeli sergeant-major was dismissed Thursday, after 11 of his soldiers went absent without leave in protest of poor service conditions, Israeli media reported.

An inquiry faulted the officer's actions but also criticized the conduct of the company commander and the platoon commander and disciplinary action will be taken against both, Ynet news reported.

The sergeant-major's friends claimed he had been made a scapegoat in the case.

The 11 soldiers who went AWOL will be allowed to retain their positions, the report said.
